Automated discipline, easily // I've been using Beeminder ( the last few days and it seems to be the perfect tool for the concept described in the quote below.

Once you've set your goals and your (preferably automated) tracking, Beeminder will tell you what you need to do to be on track for your goals. And pledging money to keep your commitment (to yourself) does wonders to realising that your inaction has consequences (not the 5$, your own self and what you're missing).
“Better to cultivate discipline than to rely on motivation. force yourself to do things. force yourself to get up out of bed and practice. Force yourself to work. Motivation is fleeting and it’s easy to rely on because it requires no concentrated effort to get. Motivation comes to you, and you don’t have to chase after it.

Discipline is reliable, motivation is fleeting. The question isn’t how to keep yourself motivated. It’s how to train yourself to work without it.”
